Sicily Unpacked: Intro
This is what the RadioTimes.com is writing about the 3 episode travel show Sicily Unpacked on BBC: Andrew Graham-Dixon and Giorgio Locatelli hop aboard a cute railway carriage and visit Mount Etna. Naturally, there are stops along the way and they call at a vineyard in the foothills, where Locatelli knocks up a tasty-looking dish of deep-fried vine leaves. Yum!
But this is an artistic as well as culinary journey, so the boys have a look at the saucy Roman mosaic of the so-called “bikini girls” in the Villa Romana del Casale and help with a little bit of restoration.
It’s all rather lovely, and after yet another stop at yet another restaurant where the Michelin-starred chef makes a very witty tuna burger (really, it’s clever), Andrew and Giorgio agree that they’ve had a lovely time as their three-episode exploration ends.
